Lemos selected for NIH Bacterial Pathogenesis Study Section

Jose Lemos, Ph.D., joins the Bacterial Pathogenesis Study Section of the National Institutes of Health in July 2017. The study section reviews grant applications submitted to the NIH and makes recommendations on these applications to the appropriate NIH national advisory council or board, and surveys the status of research in their field.

Lemos has a bachelor’s degree in biology from the St. Ursula University in Brazil and master’s and doctoral degrees in microbiology and immunology from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro.

While his primary focus is research, Lemos said he is looking forward to teaching an oral biology course next year. He was hired in one of the focus areas of UF Preeminence, the university’s vision to become an international leader in more than two dozen fields including health, agriculture, computing and education.
